Stan Collymore predicts West Ham v Stoke
By Will Butcher
Stan Collymore has predicted West Ham to earn an away point against Stoke City at the Britannia Stadium on Saturday afternoon.
The Hammers come into the Premier League clash in dismal form, having won once in their last 10 matches under manager Slaven Bilic.
However, Collymore claimed on his personal Twitter account that the Hammers would steal a 1-1 draw in Staffordshire, which would be a third consecutive draw for the east London outfit.

Stoke 1 West Ham 1
Sunderland 2 Bournemouth 2
WBA 1 Leicester 1

The Hammers will be buoyed after co-owner David Gold delivered a huge injury boost on Twitter, stating Mark Noble, Sam Byram, Robert Snodgrass and Sofiane Feghouli would all be fit to travel north to Stoke.
Bilic watched his side keep Everton at bay at the London Stadium last weekend and will have been encouraged by side’s defensive work during the 0-0 draw, which is just their eighth clean sheet of the season.

Now, the Croatian manager will be hoping his side can go one better on their 1-1 draw with Mark Hughes’ Potters back in November.
Sitting in 14th place, the Hammers are in danger of entering a relegation scrap as they sit only seven points above the bottom three but a win will take them to ninth if results go their way.
